Create an itinerary including Montparnasse Tower
Paris' only skyscraper, Montparnasse Tower rises 210 m (689 ft) into the sky. While the majority of the tower contains offices, it’s also home to a mall where you'll find gift shops and restaurants. Take the elevator to the top floor and walk up the rest of the stairs to the panoramic terrace that contains a permanent exhibition with panels that present Paris and interactive markers, plus a cafe, a gift shop, and floor-to-ceiling windows with 360-degree views of the city. This tower is not as tall as the Eiffel Tower, so you’ll view things that aren’t as easily seen from such great heights.

  • Our Tour Gp did not manage to get the tickets for Eiffel Tower so this was a replacement, and a great one we found out. Named after Mount Parnassus, the Greek mountain, Montparnasse Tower is Paris...

  • I was there about 10 maybe 11 years ago and it was great now with that glass around on the top it is not the same anymore. But the view are still nice. If u short you need to stand on your toes to see between the glass, not great at all. Love staff at the cafe. Everyone helpful and friendly.
  • Beautiful view of the city. Especially on such a clear and sunny day. The roof terrace is very nice and worth a visit. There is a small bar, and relaxed music. And the roof terrace is smaller then the roof of the building, so even with my vertigo I could enjoy it very much, since you can only look down three metres or so. I usually can't go near an edge, so I was very pleased with this one!!! Also, there is no metal mesh, but a glass wall, so the views are amazing. I found it well worth the admission, and we spent about 90 minutes taking in the views
